Assessment and Recommendations

Better skills policies help build economic resilience, boost employment and reinforce social cohesion. The OECD Skills Strategy provides countries with a framework to analyse their skills strengths and challenges. Each OECD Skills Strategy diagnostic report reflects a set of skills challenges identified by broad stakeholder engagement and OECD comparative evidence while offering concrete examples of how other countries have tackled similar skills challenges. 

These reports tackle questions such as: How can countries maximise their skills potential? How can they improve their performance in developing relevant skills, activating skills supply and using skills effectively? What is the benefit of a whole-of-government approach to skills? How can governments build stronger partnerships with employers, trade unions, teachers and students to deliver better skills outcomes? OECD Skills Strategy diagnostic reports provide new insights into these questions and help identify the core components of successful skills strategies. 

This report is part of the OECD’s ongoing work on building effective national and local skills strategies.



Strengthening the governance of adult learning

The chapter presents diagnostic evidence on the governance of adult learning in Flanders, the factors that affect the governance of adult learning and specific policies and practices to strengthen the governance of adult learning. Flanders can strengthen its adult learning governance by taking action in four areas. These are: 1) developing a long-term vision for adult learning; 2) promoting a whole-of-government approach to adult learning; 3) using networks to promote collaboration between government and stakeholders at the local level; 4) consolidating information sources on adult learning for greater transparency.
